DC29 - Stripdown, repair and refurb
« on: March 31, 2016, 02:40:58 PM »
Hi again,

I'm back! After (nearly) fixing the DC02 - it works well enough, but the cable rewind wants looking at. Still haven't finished the DC07 (still half-way through).

This time, I spied a cheap (well for here cheap) DC29 up for sale local , which I picked up this morning for 35 yoyos. http://www.adverts.ie/10161551

All the accessories are there AFAIK, so even if it was EoL, the tools and wand could be used with the non-powered DC31.   Mrs Honda rolled her eyes when I said I'd accidentally bought another. "What do you want it for?" (etc., etc.) "...er, um, something lighter for the kids to play with..."  :grinn:

Dyson dc29 for parts.
The motor is running but no suction
All other parts perfect

On talking to the seller it had motor burning smell. Anyway, I took most of it apart this morning as it was nice (until a shower now) outside and checked for blockages (hadn't even powered it up at that point. On finding none, I plugged it in and got that instant whiff - the motor brushes are toast.

Pictures to follow when I get them sorted into some sort of order.  :thumbsup:
